Regenerative therapy is an innovative process that utilizes an individual's own cells to promote healing within their body. Scientists have found that regenerative therapy permits the body to heal itself using concentrated cells that can be harvested from several areas on their body, such as the bone marrow or adipose tissue. At Jansen Plastic Surgery, we offer regenerative therapy for cosmetic purposes, as well as joint pain management. Our team has seen exciting improvements to patients' complexions, as well as a stark decrease in joint pain. Beginning with a consultation to discuss your concerns and medical history, one of our experienced physicians can create a regenerative therapy treatment plan for New Orleans, LA area men and women who desire a natural solution for pain management and skin rejuvenation.
Regenerative therapy uses Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) fat cells that are obtained from one of several locations in your body, typically the abdomen, hip, or thigh. Once we have safely aspirated the cells, we will concentrate them and inject them back into your body in the desired area. The face for facial rejuvenation, the knee,hip or base of thumb for arthritic joint problems. At Jansen Plastic Surgery, we most commonly treat arthritic joints, knees, hips, as well as the facial skin for cosmetic rejuvenation. The process may take up to an hour from the time of aspiration to the injection of the SVF.
Once your procedure has been completed, a member of our team will allow you to rest for a little while before leaving our facility. Before you leave to return home, a customized aftercare plan will be given to you to help your SVF harvest site heal quickly and without incident. You may be asked to return to Jansen Plastic Surgery for follow-up appointments so that our surgeons can check on the progress of your healing. Patients should carefully follow all post-procedure instructions to ensure a seamless recovery.
"Been with Dr Jansen for four years. He was a great dr to have on my side."- R.D. / Healthgrades / Sep 19, 2019
"I had gender affirming top surgery (chest masculinization) with Dr. Jansen. He was kind and pragmatic about my desires and possible results. I know there's a large variance in potential outcomes, but i feel like he did a superb job overall, and i couldn't be happier. His staff is also very kind, and i felt like the experience was overall affirming and positive. "- D. / Healthgrades / Sep 08, 2021
"I went to Dr. Tandon for a much needed breast reduction to help with chronic pain. I have had 12+ surgeries for cleft lip and palate repair so this was not my first rodeo with a surgery. I found Dr. Tandon to have such a comforting sense of quiet confidence and I immediately trusted him. Throughout consultations, pre op, surgery, and post op he was always the perfect mix of reassuring and casual which really helped my medical anxiety. His demeanor and professionalism always set me at ease. I told Dr. Tandon that I just wanted to look proportionate for my size and to not be in pain and he assured me that he could do that for me. I am a month post op and haven't had any back pain yet -- I could cry! I felt secure enough to leave my sizing up to him and his expertise and I I am incredibly happy with my results and the quality of care from him and his staff. I would recommend him highly to anyone in the area looking for a plastic surgeon."- B.F. / Google / Sep 08, 2021
"The journey of knowing Dr.Tandon over the last few years brings me to tears. I still remember the day my mom found out the pain she had been having in her breast was indeed cancer. Then it began..all the appointments, tests, surgeries, all watching my mom with her courage and strength as I was a wreck inside. Her oncology surgeon Dr. Colfry recommended Dr. Tandon and assured us he was “who he would send his own mom to.” Meeting Dr. Tandon immediately became my mom’s safe place. His demeanor and gentle spirit was exactly what she needed. He has a calm confidence about him that lets you relax and trust, and that’s not easy these days. My mom smiled and lit up whenever she saw him and always called him her “favorite.” Naturally, when I underwent my breast reduction earlier this year, there was no question who I chose. For my own experience as a patient I was so grateful to the kindness I received. The girls at the front desk were always friendly and helpful. Shannon, Dr. Tandon’s nurse was such an amazing support. She was with me every step of the way and was incredible when she removed my drains..I didn’t feel a thing! The very first week after surgery, I felt like I had a neck and back transplant. It’s been 4 months now and I went from having burning pain every day to being pain free! There are no words deserving enough that I can give to describe my gratitude for receiving that gift. It’s been a two year journey knowing Dr. Tandon, and my courageous mom continues to endure her battle with breast cancer. But I can’t express enough, the value in the “knowing” that we’re not alone in this. To see the smile on mom’s face when you even say her doctor’s name, is priceless. Dr. Tandon, with all the uncertainty, panic, and fear that we’ve faced on this long road, thank you for being a safe place for us. You will always be a blessing to my family."- K.M. / Google / Jul 02, 2021
"Dr. Tandon is a wonderful and caring doctor. I love love love him and Shannon! Everyone in the office are extremely nice! I would recommend him fifty million times!!"- G.M. / Google / Jun 22, 2021

Frequently Asked Questions
What About Rejection?
Because the SVF cells are being harvested from your own body and returned to your body, they will not be rejected. Rejection is only seen in cases where cells are harvested from a donor. Our team will be happy to explain this to you in detail during a consultation at our New Orleans, LA facility.
How Many Treatments?
As each patient is unique, we do not ensure that any number of treatments will cure your condition. However, we can inform you that in many cases, joints loss stabilizes and skin heals in as few as one treatment with regenerative therapy. Regardless, at your consultation, one of the Jansen Plastic Surgery physicians will create a customized treatment plan that is unique to your specific needs and concerns. Your plan may include one or several treatments, depending on your condition.
How Much Does it Cost?
The only way to give you a precise price is to meet with you during a consultation. After an evaluation by one of our plastic surgeons, we can create a customized treatment plan that includes the number of injections that are recommended for your condition. After these factors have been determined, a member of our team can help you to understand the cost of your services, as well as the payment methods we accept at Jansen Plastic Surgery.
What Can I Expect?
The results of your regenerative therapy will vary according to the purpose of the treatment, the severity of the condition being treated, and the location of the treatment area.
